INDIANAPOLIS -- It's a cool opportunity to do some bird watching from afar.

Two bald eagles are nesting at the Notre Dame Linked Experimental Ecosystem Facility at St. Patrick's County Park in South Bend, Ind.

A webcam is live streaming the eagle's activity.

Experts say bald eagles in that region typically lay two eggs in late February or early March.

They take exactly 35 days to hatch.

Because of the angle of the camera, you probably won't be able to see the hatchlings until they are roughly five to six weeks old,

Eagles are protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.
